  1. This certainly works on the Windows client (at least it did on Friday), so if it's broken, then it's something to do with the Mac client. But OCR is done in the cloud, and so should be the same for everyone, so I am guessing the problem lies elsewhere. How long did you wait before you clipped the image and when you searched? There is a lag time for the OCR to take place on Evernote's servers (it's less for Premium users). ~Jeff
  2. Why not just have a Work stack and a Private stack? ~Jeff
  3. If you drag a notebook onto another notebook, it makes a stack containing both notebooks, called "Notebook Stack", or something like it. ~Jeff
  4. [just downloaded the stacks-enabled beta] I think that's not the case: I made a stack of other's notebooks (Epicurious, Make, Ron't Tips), then I dragged a note from a different notebook onto the stack. It wound up in the Epicuriuos notebook (first notebook alphabetically?). So I think that the answer's no: stacks do not count against the 100 notebook limit. But official workd might negate that... ~Jeff
  5. Can you put notes in stacks, or only in notebooks? If the latter, then stacks probably do not count. Just a guess... ~Jeff
  6. I did a forum search for "ssh secure" and came up with this thread: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=18230&start=0&hilit=ssh+secure. You could also search on "ssl secure". ~Jeff
  7. Select your notes. Ctrl + Alt + T gets you to the Assign Tags dialog. Select "Hide unassigned tags" to show only the tags that have been assigned to your notes. Uncheck the tag that you want to remove. Click Ok and you are done. ~Jeff
  8. Notebooks are certainly useful for sharing, and for keeping notes local (off the cloud). Beyond that, I only have two notebooks, one of which is a Test notebook for experiments and things that I don't really care about. Everything else goes in the Jeff notebook. Other than that, it's tags, tags, tags. ~Jeff
  9. My wife just went to a fairly new local restaurant: Green Elephant. She said that it was good. Maybe there could be a product tie-in?? ~Jeff
  10. I saw this just yesterday; a little red 'X' on the Chrome clipper icon. I guess what happened is that I tried to clip something, but it wasn't able to connect to the Evernote server, and put up the little 'X'. Eventually it cleared up on its own; maybe I clicked on it, and it got sent up, I'm not sure. It's fine now. This was on Windows,by the way. ~Jeff
  11. Nope, none that I know of while entering tags on a note. Usually I just create them as needed, and every so often, I make them fit into my hierarchy, which is not all that elaborate anyways. ~Jeff
  12. What platform are you talking about? There are separate forums for the different platforms and it's helpful to post as appropriate. In the Windows client, you can right-click on a tag in the Tag list, and one of the operations available is "Create Tag in ". ~Jeff
  13. Seems like your first statement and your last statement are a little contradictory -- what did you expect, everyone to agree with you? Maybe so, since your second statement asks us to assume that the Android app is ugly, and not everyone agrees with that premise. Anyway... Frankly, it does seem like you're talking about color scheme and eye candy, and that's pretty much in the eye of the beholder (some people like plaid, and some don't). But UI/UX is not just about pretty colors -- I'm sure you know that. If you were talking at the level of user interaction, then that would be another matter: is the app easy to use? Does the workflow actually flow? Are common operations easy to access? And so on. So if you're serious in your criticism, and a serious UI designer, why don't you mock up what you think it should look like. Evernote is not unreceptive to suggestions, particularly when they're constructive. Just rolling in and flinging around "ugly" and "GHETTO-IZED" (?!?!?) aren't really helpful. ~Jeff
  14. There is some doubt about sync'ing stacks with the current beta: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=20691 ~Jeff
  15. I'm not an Android user, but when SpringPad gives me what Evernote does on the Windows desktop, then that might have meaning to me. As it stands, SpringPad isn't even in the conversation. Of course, your mileage probably varies, and if you don't care for how Evernote looks,and SpringPad has enough functionality for you, then even the Evernote folks usually acknowledge that you should be using what works for you. And they'd thank you for your suggestions, too. Good luck. ~Jeff
  16. I think that you'll find that the OCR doesn't produce an actual text representation of the image its scanned, but instead is used to make a search index for the words it thinks it's recognized, such that they can be tied to locations in the image. If you're interested in all of that, you can try spelunking in an exported note, inside the tag "recognition". ~Jeff
  17. More motivation for the sort of dual-mode Note View/Markup View editing that others have suggested, and which I am starting to feel some attraction for myself, despite generally residingin the Keep Evernote Simple camp... ~Jeff
  18. Or "do not use this device as a bomb shelter" (Indiana Jones notwithstanding). Often these types of manuals have instructions in English, Spanish, French, German and other languages. ~Jeff
  19. Yeah, right now it's all a bit of a do-it-yourself affair; with the addition of Due dates and the ability of the search grammar to deal with dates in the future, it'll probably still be DIY, but hopefully a little easier to manage. ~Jeff
  20. Although due dates are on the radar for Evernote, and I don't know for sure what form they'll take, my impression is that there will be one Due Date per note, just as there's one Created date and one Updated date. As there can be more than one checkbox per note, I don't think that the checkboxes will be tied explicitly to the Due date. Mind you that this is all speculative on my part. ~Jeff
  21. I am guessing that the original poster is asking for something a little bit different. Rather than asking for anything like a PDF print driver (which already exist), I think they are asking for a virtual Evernote print driver, sich that when you "print" a document to it, the document is actually shuffled off to Evernote in the form of a note. So no intermediate PDF import step is required. It's probably the same order of magnitude in terms of difficulty of implementation, though. ~Jeff
  22. If you have comments pertaining to a particular thread, you should post them there. I suggest going back to the thread you referenced, and continuing the conversation there. ~Jeff
  23. I don't think so: here's the announcement of the first mac 2 alpha: http://forum.evernote.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=19967 ~Jeff
  24. With regards to the Windows clients, I think that it was pretty well understood during the version 4 beta process that addition of new features would mostly wait until after they got to parity with the 3.5 feature set (they did add some new ones, e.g. Print options). They are pretty close to that now, and now that it's pretty stable (though there are still bugs) I'm thinking that we'll see an increased focus on adding more new features, like the stacked notebooks that have appeared in the Mac 2 alpha, support for shared notebooks, maybe even note linking? On another front, I think we'll see more incremental type improvements to the various note formatting and editing glitches that are still with us. Moving past the 3.5 platform was important; a total rewrite isn't always the best answer (see Joel Spolsky -- Things You Should Never Do, Part 1), but it happened, and they're moving on, albeit with some growing pains, I think. But getting to a stable platform was essential for moving ahead with the new features that they want to roll out. To me, Evernote has hit a kind of sweet spot with its mix of features and near-ubiquity/cloud-iness. The cloud aspect is great, sure, but it has enough features that make it appealing to me, too (and I guess others). Could it be better? You bet -- there are lots of things that aren't working just exactly perfectly now and must be addressed, but I think we'll see more of that now that they feel that version 4 is stable enough to build on. ~Jeff
